Fire (Red) v Warriors in ABL

Organizers of the Accra Basketball League (ABL) have taken a strong stance on all personnel involved in the 2021 ABL Season getting vaccinated before the league campaign tips off.

This comes in the wake of the ABL announcing dates for vaccination against the deadly virus that 179 million people and killed 3.88 million worldwide. In Ghana that figure stands at 95,236 infections and 794 deaths at the time of writing.

July 2 and July 3 have been earmarked as the days to vaccinate all persons set to be involved in the upcoming season. However, a specific location is yet to be communicated by the League.

Information from the ABL states persons who have had their first dose of vaccines are to report on the vaccination days with proof of vaccination for the second dose.
